Harvey Pekar's 1987 Letterman Appearance
Harvey Pekar, celebrated comic book author and subject of the 2003 biopic American Splendor, was found dead in his Cleveland home this morning. I'm not going to try and write an obituary for him here, as I'm sure there will be an awful lot of those floating around by the end of the day, but I'll leave you with one of his classic appearances on Late Night with David Letterman. Pekar was a guest several times on the show. This 1987 appearance was portrayed in the aforementioned film. You certainly get a feel for his unique, iconoclastic personality.
Take care, Harvey.
